SEASON 11 - TRAINING CAMP

1. Use three words to classify how your off-season went, and explain.
Exciting - There's no feeling in the world that matches that first round in the draft - something I had yet to experience this year since last year we traded that first round pick to get Juan Kirk. We were unlucky in the draft order but I didn't allow that to deter me in making the moves necessary to get an important piece to us.  We like to run the ball and run the ball we shall with the combo of Chandler and Estates - who I still can't believe fell that far in the draft.

Conflicted - There's no chance talking about our off season without bringing up Donald and Daniel Ford.  I negotiated the entire Early Restricted Free Agency with his agent Amber Molina and we couldn't get a deal done.  I had been in his home and met Donald who is an inspiration.  That gap in time let me ponder and while I continued to negotiate with Daniel I couldn't get Donald out of my head.  I'm sorry for how things went. I'm sorry I ended up hurting Daniel Ford.  It isn't conduct becoming of a GM to negotiate in bad faith so I publicly apologize to Daniel Ford and Amber Molina.  I do think Donald Ford will be a positive for this team and truly a hallmark moment for the league and an inspiration to those at home and in the locker room.

Affirming - That's what I think of when I see Timothy Dekker.  This player is going to make me look smart just for recognizing the obvious.  We spent the money to scout him and it was nothing but rave reviews so I laid down money to equal that scouting report.  We put in a long term plan and not just hot shot someone in a comeback before they were ready.  If anything we may have held him back more but we stuck to the program.  But Timothy Dekker will affirm that we have a process here in Portland and that process works.

2. Coming out of training camp, where do you rank your team in the division, in the conference, and in the league?
- We're not an Impact Bowl Contender that's for sure.  In terms of what I want for us as a team - I want us to be much more consistent at home before I start talking about playoffs.  Our home record was abysmal last season and the city and people of Portland deserve better.  I'm looking to compete in the division first before we talk conference or league and I know one player whose highly motivated to whoop on a certain team within the division.


3. Do you have any position battles planned for the preseason?  Which jobs are up for grabs and what do you hope to gain from the preseason games?

- There's always room in the depth chart to make waves.  Most of our starting positions are locked up but I have to say I'm intrigued by the players we have at DT.  Charlton, Goodman and Longoria all have different types of positive and each comes with areas to improve on. 

Are there any other questions?

Thanks for understanding Anthony. While I have you on the line how about we talk about your client Steven Cuevas. It seems the Rapid City Inferno have let him go and we have a spot for a CB here.  How does 2 years 2 Million sound?

Hello Hoppy can we get Anthony Campanelli on the line

Anthony I know currently at the moment I'm not your most favorite person in the world but I felt I owed it to you to make this call.  We will be sending down Richard Welker to the minors. I don't do thison a whim.  Richard suffered a major injury at the end of last season but showed us a lot of promise before then.  That's why I hired Coach Seaton to work directly with Welker and train him up.  What we did with Timothy Dekker was smart and I feel will pay off.  We can do the same with Richard.  That way next year when both Crawford and Brewster will be off the books Richard will be ready to step into the starting position in a better position than he would now.  This organization believes in Richard and we are investing in him. I know my word might not mean much but my actions in these specific examples have held true.

Iím doing good. Thank you Anthony for asking. How about yourself how are you and Randall doing?

So Iím sure when you became his representation you had a certain expectation on when, where and who would draft your client. I would imagine after the lottery was announced Portland wasnít on that list.

That being said we would definitely want to build long term around a dominant offensive line and weapons that can take advantage so I want a long term deal to build that roster in the 5-6 year range but all of the players picked in front of Randall signed for 4 years. What do you and Randall think? Can he or does he want to commit that long term?

Thank you for that information hoppy. I would like you to get David Seaton on the line

David how are you?

Listen Iím interested in bringing you in for one reason. We want you to work exclusively with Richard Welker. He suffered a terrible injury and we want him to be the future of this franchise or find out if thatís not going to be something we can expect. I know in St. Paul you were the offensive coordinator and technically this would be a demotion but I would like to offer a 1 year 4 million dollar deal. I donít know if youíve got other offers for offensive coordinator but perhaps you can think of us as an option.

S10 WEEK 18 - ELIMINATED FROM PLAYOFFS

1. Talk about this weeks performance from your team. (if you were in the playoff hunt, talk about the let down of falling short)

This is a game I wanted to have because if you can't make the playoffs the next best thing you can do is share in the pain by taking someone else out.  To be able to do that against a divisional rival would have been even better but instead we took one on the chin and lost to the Seattle Lumberjacks.  The game was close through the first three quarters though I'm sure it was much more defensive than either team expected.  Seattle found the right rhythm in the fourth quarter and separated themselves big time courtesy of Brewster's arm.

2. Who was your MVP this season, and why?
As an expansion team you have to give credit to our veterans who kept the team in line like Stephen Crawford, Dee Rutherford, and Juan Kirk to name a few.  But on the field I think the credit has to go to Lawrence Gordon.  The rookie performed amassing a total of 88 Catches for 1167 Yards.  He was also the man to go to in the red zone as he made sure he was available and got us 16 Touchdowns. Even more impressive is being a primary and as a rookie going against the best CB he only had 8 Drops.


3. Who was your most disappointing player this year, and why? [DO NOT COP OUT]
I'd have to go with Dee Ruth - no I'm just kidding.  Dee had an amazing season for us and it was wrong of me to call him out mid season.  But the question still needs an answer and I will give it. I'd have to say it's Frank Cooney.  Certainly it was a shame that his season ended with a terrible injury and we wish him a speedy recovery.  It felt like he didn't find his groove earlier in the season.  I thought he would finish strong in Week 16 after that performance against Rapid City with 5 tackles and 4 Pass Deflections but then the injury came.  For someone we invested a lot in when we drafted him the first year did not go well but I hope his rehab goes well and he can make our secondary next year go to the next level.

4. How would you grade your coaches performances this year?
Everything is relative but for an expansion team our coaching staff did well earning themselves a grade of B+.  We established an identity even without always seeing the results we had.  We also had a big time victory against the defending champs that I will certainly remember fondly.  But we need to win more games at home.  1 is not enough and we need to at least be .500


5. How would you grade your own performance this year?
I'm going to give myself a B- .  I certainly had some missteps that sent my Head Coach on a vacation for a bit.  But I felt we built a solid foundation and have an identity.  We certainly have the most talented man in the minor leagues that we hope to have on our main roster next year.


6. Who is your pick to go and win the impact bowl?
Defense wins championships.  I'm taking St. Paul
